ImageThomas Kelati signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. However it is not a guaranteed contract and 27-year old Kelati will have to "fight" with four other players that are currently under non-guaranteed contracts, including Mickael Gelabale, for a spot in the final squad.

Kelati had signed a 2-year deal with Olympiacos earlier this summer, but he failed to pass the medical exams so the deal was called off. If he makes the final squad of the Lakers he can surely say that it turned out for the best.
